||Dimensions of job control in computerized and traditional work and its health effects
||1995, Vol.1, No.1, p.29-41. 25 ref.
||A questionnaire survey of VDU and non-VDU users was conducted to investigate the relationship between computerization and both global job control and control related to specific tasks. Results showed no clear relationship between job control and computerization of work; latitude of control depended on the task performed and the aspect of control under consideration. There were significant relationships between global control and psychological stress symptoms (job satisfaction, moods) and somatic complaints; other aspects of control were correlated with stress symptoms in a variety of ways. It is recommended that the concept of global control should be avoided, and where possible, specific indexes of control should be applied.
